ROCKTON – Hononegah senior runner Taylor Frommer signed her National Letter of Intent to compete in track and cross country for the University of Illinois-Chicago.
Frommer holds a few Hononegah records, and is excited to compete at the NCAA Division I level. According to Paul Meyers, Frommer’s assistant coach the past three years, Frommer is just the 4th girl to compete in DI track in the past dozen years. She joins the likes of Courtney Clayton, who ran at Vanderbilt, and Patrice Jones, who competed at Illinois State.
“To be in the ranks with them, that means a lot to me,” Frommer said. “I’ve always looked up to them. I’ve always seen their records on the record board. I’m like, ‘I’m going to try to get there,’ and I have and I couldn’t be more proud.”
Frommer has one more season to compete as a Lady Indian, so she’ll try to make the most of her track season this coming spring.
